Book Arts Improv: Call #2

Book Arts Improv logoWelcome to the second week of the 5th Annual Book Arts Improv!

In case you’re new here, in a nutshell, the Improv is a four-week stretch of improvisational bookmaking. Depending on the content and complexity of the book, an edition of three or more will be created each week.

And now, the call for suggestions:

  1. A rejected theme for a restaurant.
  2. An intriguing title of a straight-to-video movie.
  3. Something that should never inspire a topiary.

To participate in the Improv, just comment on this post with a response for each of the three categories listed above. I’d like to keep this suitable for all audiences, so please, nothing offensive.

I will accept suggestions until 5:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday, January 13th. On that day, one entry will be selected at random and not only will that person’s suggestions be used for that week’s book, but the winner will also receive a copy of the book.

I look forward to seeing your entries!

My Elissa, wherever do you come up with these fascinating items… On the very off chance you should wind up stuck with mine, I thought I’d stick to a consistent theme.

1. Gourmet edible insects
2. Roach Bait: A Survival Story
3. A Venus flytrap

Ellen –

I mostly just make up the questions, but it’s hard to come up with ideas! I have done a little bit of research on improv comedy topics as a source of inspiration.
